By endorsing Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s bid to lead the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 elections, Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has taken a courageous action.

He clarified, however, that the other candidates were qualified but that Bawumia towered over them.
During an interview with 3 News on July 10, 2023, he made the audacious proclamation.

“In a group of competent individuals, one will emerge as exceptionally competent. I’m looking at Dr. Bawumia’s experience. I am considering his party loyalty. I am observing his focus. I am observing his vision. I am observing his temperament. “I’m observing his modesty among the group,” he stated.
Among other reasons, he cited Bawumia’s competence, loyalty, and vision as the basis for his support for his campaign.
It is now Bawumia’s turn to assume leadership of the NPP.
The veteran politician and minister for parliamentary affairs added that Bawumia should assume the leadership of the governing party.
“In 2008, when former President Kufour was leaving office, there were similar rumors that the system was supporting Alan Kyeremanten, but it didn’t work out for him because it was Akufo-Addo’s season,” he stated categorically.
